Support » Plugin: CalPress Calendar » [Plugin: CalPress Event Calendar] v1.3 brakes the whole site using bbPress & BuddyPress

  • Resolved rain3r.walt3r


    Just updated CalPress to the new version (v1.3) without deactivating the older CalPress version before. I use a mix of WP 3.3.1, BuddyPress, bbPress & Privates BuddyPress. All was fine using CalPress v1.2.6.

    Now comes the problem:

    After updating CalPress (v1.3) the whole site was broken (blank page). It seems the new version (v1.3) now is incompatible with “bbPress” & “BuddyPress”.

    Even after deleting the plugin folder of CalPress via FTP the blank page remained. Only as I deleted/renamed the plugin folder of “bbPress” and the plugin folder of “BuddyPress” the frontend was reachable again but not the backend of WP. I had to rename all of my used plugins via FTP. After that I could reach the backend of WP again…

    Now I am back to v1.2.6 & CalPress, BuddyPress & bbPress are working fine together.

    Hope you can fix this asap!

    Thanks. 😉

  • Ok i found the culprit & it was not CalPress!

    The problem was the mix of BuddyPress+WordPress on MAMP.


    Step 1: Increase PHP.ini Memory Limit
    To start, you must increase the amount of memory available to php by editing MAMP’s php.ini file. This file is located inside your MAMP application folder.

    If you are using PHP version 5.3.6:

    If you are using PHP version 5.2.17:

    Next, search for the line “memory_limit”. The default value is 32M. I have chosen to increase mine to 256M, as you can see below.

    Step 2: Edit .htaccess File
    Next, we must add a single line to our .htaccess file in order to allow our WordPress installation to utilize the extra memory we just allocated to PHP. Your .htaccess file should be located in the root of your WP installation (ex. /www).

    Note: This is a hidden file. In order to view this file, you must make hidden files viewable. If you’re on a Mac, I recommend using the ShowHiddenFiles application.

    If you have your hidden files set to show, and you still do not see the .htaccess file, try enabling Pretty Permalinks from within your WP Dashboard.

    Once you have found the .htaccess file, open it in a text editor and add the following line:

    php_value memory_limit 256M

    Step 3: Install BuddyPress
    That’s it! From this point, you are now ready to install BuddyPress. You should be able to activate and install the plugin as normal.

    I hope that this helps some of you that have struggled with using BuddyPress on a local installation like I have.

    Have a good one. 🙂
